We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Some More Good, Edifying Reading

We are NOT “spiritual Israel.”  I really get tired of being told that we are.  Find it in the Bible, please.  Part 2.

An interesting apologetics site.

Objective moral standards prove the existence of God.

How many of each type animal did Noah bring onto the ark?


 If you’re a Democrat, you’re probably not saved.  I agree 100%


John MacArthur is an excellent teacher, if you easily “tip-toe through the TULIPs."



God in your own image. Interesting overview of many false gods of cults.

Hello Glenn, do Calvinists believe they are "spiritual Israel"? By the way I am reading your very helpful articles on calvinism. A very convoluted system of beliefs...I sort of liken it to a computer programming term : "spaghetti code".

Hi Chris,

I think overall they do, but many I've met do not.

The problem with Noah's ark is that it was simply impossible to build in the first place. The power of the waters in a global flood would totally destroy a wooden ark. The dinosaurs would have eaten the people before they even got off. Geologists, Christian and secular, have laughed off the idea of a global flood for centuries.

Glenn,

So, do you think that America will soon become as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah? I would not doubt it, especially considering the recent radical abortion laws passed in a few states.

Hi Glenn,

I clicked on the "Democrats not Saved" article but get a broken link. Just wanted to bring to your attention. THanks.

Anonymous Troll,

Thank you for demonstrating your abject ignorance on ship-building, physics of ship dynamics, dinosaurs, etc. Christian geologists who are actually Christians and geologists have never laughed about global flooding.

I suggest you repair some of your ignorance by acquiring and reading "Noah's Ark: A Feasibility Study," by John Woodmorappe.

Take your ignorant trolling elsewhere.

Jesse,

I think we are already worse than Sodom and Gomorra

Wayne,

Thanks. A slight change was made in the link, I discovered, so the new version is there now.

Glenn,

Many good articles here. Really appreciated the one on discernment. If I could say the #1 problem my husband and I have had as believers, it would be that we've been repeatedly "murdered" by our brothers and sisters (including almost every pastor we've sat under) for having Biblical discernment. In fact, we've face more persecution from inside church walls, than anything else. It gets fatiguing at times, which is why we appreciate the fellowship we can have with other believers with equal discernment.

Carolyn,

I fully understand; I've been "murdered" many times by those inside the church, including leadership who don't like to be told they lack discernment.
